cubic metres of landfill space saved
What We Do
Recovering Energy From Waste
We transform solid non-hazardous waste from municipal, industrial, commercial, and institutional channels into renewable energy. The reclaimed thermal energy is then converted into both steam and electricity for utilization within our community.
Who We Are
Leaders in Ontario Waste Energy
Since its inception in 1992, we have managed over 3 million tonnes of waste, consistently meeting Ontario’s rigorous environmental regulations, among the most stringent globally. Our robust environmental monitoring initiatives affirm our capability to operate safely within our community.
While the Emerald facility has been in uninterrupted operation since 1992, ongoing investments in cutting-edge technology empower us to meet the evolving demands of our clientele. Significant capital infusions and updates to our licenses were undertaken in 2000, 2013, and 2021.
Emerald proposes redeveloping our site to install modern, more efficient technology. The redevelopment will occur in phases, increasing our processing capacity to 2,500 t/d of municipal and commercial waste and our energy recovery rate to 100 MW.
